Hear-o will give millions of people new opportunities

The ability to call anybody and anywhere
is taken for granted these days. However,
this is not true for more than 450 million people around the globe with hearing loss.
Hear-o will give this opportunity to all of us.


This project was run on Indiegogo.com but unfortunately didn't get enough support. If you may help us to realize it, get in touch with us.

The app that translates sign language
to text and speech

Hear-o will be a unique mobile app able to translate sign language to written text or speech. It will use cutting edge innovations in the field of computer vision and artificial intelligence to enable anyone deaf to call, present to or chat with others without any limitations.


The only thing that a person needs is a mobile phone with a camera, an internet connection, and the Hear-o app.


Why does Hear-o need your help?

We want to provide an artificial intelligence that truly helps. Our AI solutions is already ensuring that healthier babies are brought into the world or discovering markers of diabetes. Unfortunately, deaf and hard of hearing individuals have been neglected in the booming industry of AI so far. Before we can start with Hear-o, we have to collect an enormous amount of data and develop

the app. Here is where we need the help of the community. In order to train a high-quality AI, we need to obtain and process at least 1000 hours of video footage of signing people and transcribe it to text. This is a challenging task. While creating our video materials, we plan to cooperate with broadcasting stations and deaf community centers.

How will be Hear-O developed

How will Hear-o work?

Hear-o is not an app just for calling. It will enable face to face communication and live translation of sign language during a public speech.

#1 Calling

A deaf or hard of hearing caller will communicate with the sign language towards a camera in her or his smartphone. Signs will be captured and translated by AI to text, and synthesized as a voice audible by the recipient.

From the other side, recipient's voice will be translated back to the text displayed on the smartphone of the deaf or hard of hearing person.

Let's imagine a hypothetical scenario where Jacob wants to make a reservation at the Corner Bistro restaurant.

He finds this restaurant on the map and hits his phone's call button. Jacob chooses the Hear-o app instead of a traditional call. When the restaurant employee picks up, he starts signing to make a reservation. Finally, when the call is finished, the reservation is automatically saved in his calendar.

#2 Face to face communication and presenting

Imagine another scenario with Jacob: he wants to present his ideas publicly to the audience.

In order to do that, he opens the Hear-o app and chooses the Sign Out Loud feature. Now, he has the opportunity to connect to the loudspeakers in the room, and he is ready to start signing. Everything he signs will be translated instantly to text and speech.
